Through The Eyes Of A Teenager
I always kick myself for not sitting down with Dad and getting a real long brain dump -- See Dad was 40 when I was born... What was life really like? How did he get the news since they didn't have a radio when he was growing up! What was it like to have to go to bed when the sun went down becuase electric lights were unknown? What was the kitchen like with the wood burning stove?
Kids today will be licking themselves also someday for not sitting back and listening to their elders.
The 1920s represents both the heyday and the twilight of the silent era. It also marks the birth of sound and the growing popularity of early talkies.
Silent Cinema was at its peak, when the arrival of the first sound film in 1927 shook its foundations. The last three years of the decade offered a mix of both silent and talking pictures.
Dad would have been sixteen years old
This could have been Dad as he would have been eighteen
I wonder what Mom looked like in a bathing suit?
Dad was married in 1926...
This must have been like Flash Gordon....
Dad was twenty-three when the stock market crashed.... Wow...
